KIRKUS REVIEW

This will sell. The famous woman correspondent and columnist has built up a devoted following and they are the sure market for a slim book which presents the outline of her political creed, her definitions of modern political terminology, her views on the international situation, in broad terms, rather than specific ones, her ideals of true liberalism and the aims towards which we should turn, her angle on women's responsibility. She has not yielded to the temptation to become personal, but the implications are there, that ""he who runs may read."" The book lacks the punch that made Hamilton Fish Armstrong's We Or They? a universal challenge, but it helps formulate generalizations that many are groping towards. It is unfortunate that it is given a title that seems trite and vaguely reminiscent of ""David Goes to Greenland"" and others of its ilk. Perhaps it will be changed. A good book for plus sales. Watch it!
